The City of Pensacola, Florida (City or Airport Sponsor) proposes to develop and operate an aircraft maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) facility on the northwest side of the Pensacola International Airport (the Airport). This facility will expand similar MRO facilities that already exist on the northeast side of the Airport leased to and operated by VT Mobile Aerospace Engineering, Incorporated (VT MAE), hereafter referred to as the MRO Operator. The City seeks an unconditional Airport Layout Plan (ALP) approval.
The federal actions associated with ALP approval require that the FAA consider environmental impacts in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) guidance contained in FAA Order 5050.4B, NEPA Implementing Instructions for Airport Actions, and FAA Order 1050.1F, Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures. This Environmental Assessment (EA) presents the environmental impacts of the Proposed Development Project to comply with the NEPA process.
Written comments on the Draft EA are welcome through February 14, 2022. Comments on the Draft EA may be submitted by mail or email (postmarked or emailed by February 14, 2022) to: Ken Ibold, Assistant Airport Director, 2430 Airport Blvd, Suite 225, Pensacola, FL 32504, firstname.lastname@example.org. All comments will be carefully reviewed and considered in a Final Environmental Assessment.
